Rand Paul as a Tea Party Blocker

Well if nothing else, Rand is serving the Republican establishment well. HuffPo explains:
McConnell faces reelection in 2014, and has been working so closely with Paul that some aides have begun to refer to the libertarian newcomer and tea party favorite as the "shadow minority leader" -- a term that presumably expires if McConnell wins his race. McConnell brought Jesse Benton, a longtime aide of Rand Paul and Ron Paul, onto his campaign. With Rand Paul in his corner, there is little chance for a tea party candidate to successfully challenge McConnell, and Paul's energized base may boost turnout in the general election.

  1. Hi Bob,

    I should like to hear you comment on Rand's defense of Apple at the Senate hearing today. What did you think of it?
